Minimal a priori lung morphology information was required for this gray-level thresholding-based segmentation. Consequently, segmentation was applicable to grossly abnormal cases. The relative areas of segmented right and left lung regions in each image were compared with the corresponding area distributions of normal images to determine the presence of abnormal asymmetry. Computerized diagnoses were compared with image ratings assigned by a radiologist. The ability of the automated method to distinguish normal from asymmetrically abnormal cases was evaluated by using receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis, which yielded an area under the ROC curve of 0.84. This automated method demonstrated promising performance in its ability to detect abnormal asymmetry in PA chest images. We believe this method could play a role in a picture archiving and communications (PACS) environment to immediately identify abnormal cases and to function as one component of a multifaceted computer-aided diagnostic scheme.  (+info)

Improving the detection of acetabular osteolysis using oblique radiographs. (2/1771)

Visualisation of periacetabular osteolysis by standard anteroposterior (AP) radiographs underestimates the extent of bone loss around a metal-backed acetabular component. We have assessed the effectiveness of standard radiological views in depicting periacetabular osteolysis, and recommend additional projections which make these lesions more visible. This was accomplished using a computerised simulation of radiological views and a radiological analysis of simulated defects placed at regular intervals around the perimeter of a cadaver acetabulum. The AP view alone showed only 38% of the defects over all of the surface of the cup and failed to depict a 3 mm lesion over 83% of the cup. When combined with the AP view, additional 45 degree obturator-oblique and iliac-oblique projections increased the depiction, showing 81% of the defects. The addition of the 60 degree obturator-oblique view further improved the visualisation of posterior defects, increasing the rate of detection to 94%. Based on this analysis, we recommend using at least three radiographic views when assessing the presence and extent of acetabular osteolysis.  (+info)

Detection of cancerous masses for screening mammography using discrete wavelet transform-based multiresolution Markov random field. (3/1771)

When cancerous masses are embedded in and camouflaged by varying densities of parenchymal tissue structures, they are difficult to visually detect on mammograms. We present a novel algorithm based on the discrete wavelet transform (DWT) and multiresolution markov random field (MMRF) that will single out the suspicious masses to assist the attending radiologist in making decisions.  (+info)

Syntactic analysis and languages of shape feature description in computer-aided diagnosis and recognition of cancerous and inflammatory lesions of organs in selected x-ray images. (4/1771)

We present new algorithms for the recognition of morphologic changes and shape feature analysis, which have been proposed to be used in a diagnosis of pathologic symptoms characteristic of cancerous and inflammatory lesions. These methods have been used so far for early detection and diagnosis of neoplastic changes in pancreas and chronic pancreatitis based on x-ray images acquired by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). Preliminary processing of x-ray images involves binarization, and, subsequently, pancreatic ducts shown in the pictures are subjected to the straightening transformation, which enables obtaining two-dimensional width graphs that show contours of objects with their morphologic changes. Recognition of such changes was performed using attributed context-free grammars. Correct description and diagnosis of some symptoms (e.g., large cavitary projections) required two-dimensional analysis of width graphs. In such cases, languages of shape feature description with special multidirectional sinquad distribution were additionally applied.  (+info)

Content-based image retrieval in picture archiving and communications systems. (5/1771)

We propose the concept of content-based image retrieval (CBIR) and demonstrate its potential use in picture archival and communication system (PACS). We address the importance of image retrieval in PACS and highlight the drawbacks existing in traditional textual-based retrieval. We use a digital mammogram database as our testing data to illustrate the idea of CBIR, where retrieval is carried out based on object shape, size, and brightness histogram. With a user-supplied query image, the system can find images with similar characteristics from the archive, and return them along with the corresponding ancillary data, which may provide a valuable reference for radiologists in a new case study. Furthermore, CBIR can perform like a consultant in emergencies when radiologists are not available. We also show that content-based retrieval is a more natural approach to man-machine communication.  (+info)

Computer-assisted telephone interview (CATI) in primary care. (6/1771)

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to study the prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors among 11,000 inhabitants in Northern Helsinki, and to identify high-risk individuals in the area and direct them to the local primary-health-care-centred CVD-risk-factor prevention programme. METHOD: We conducted a computer-assisted telephone interview (CATI), a descriptive survey and primary care unit searching for CVD risk factors within the population under its responsibility. Six hundred and sixty-seven individuals aged 18-65 years out of 1000 randomly chosen inhabitants were interviewed using CATI. We measured the prevalence of self-reported CVD risk factors: smoking, blood pressure, last measured total serum cholesterol, body mass index (BMI), alcohol consumption, diabetes, physical exercise habits, positive family history of CVD/diabetes and personal history of CVD. RESULTS: Sixty-seven per cent of the sample was interviewed. Nineteen per cent did not have a telephone and 3% refused to be interviewed. Eleven per cent did not respond. Persons with high cardiovascular risk scores were observed mainly in the oldest age group. In the total sample, 23% of women and 28% of men were estimated to be at high risk of coronary artery disease. Gender differences were seen only in one age-group: 45-54-year-old men reporting higher risk-factor scores. The results were analysed using the Statistical Analysis System (SAS). CONCLUSIONS: The CATI-method is a useful tool in screening of high-CVD-risk patients and in guiding them to local CVD primary prevention programmes.  (+info)

A correlative study of gliomas using in vivo bromodeoxyuridine labeling index and computer-aided malignancy grading. (7/1771)

An in vivo bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) labeling index (LI) was estimated in 43 cases of astrocytic tumors and mixed gliomas by one hour intra-operative intravenous infusion at a dose of 200 mg/m2 and correlated with (a) histological grading using a computer aided malignancy classifier TESTAST-268; and (b) histological typing using WHO classification. The lowest BrdU LI was seen in pilocytic and gemistocytic astrocytomas followed by astrocytomas, anaplastic astrocytomas and glioblastoma multiforme in that order. Mixed oligoastrocytomas followed the pattern of their astrocytic counterparts. Tumors of similar histological type showed different BrdU LI values especially amongst astrocytomas and glioblastomas. A statistically significant difference in the BrdU LI was also noted between the higher TESTAST grades of astrocytomas (T III and IV) versus the lower TESTAST grades (T II). Unlike earlier reports in literature, in the present study the category of BrdU LI of <1 contained no case of anaplastic astrocytoma or glioblastoma multiforme (TESTAST grades III and IV). Likewise, the category of BrdU LI >5 contained only anaplastic astrocytoma and glioblastoma multiforme (TESTAST grades III and IV). Maximum spread of cases was seen in the BrdU LI category of 1-5, not only in terms of histological types but also TESTAST grades. Thus there appeared to be a positive trend of increasing BrdU LI values both with histological types and increasing TESTAST grades. Further, an interesting observation was that by using a combination of TESTAST grades and BrdU LI, the histologically homogenous glioblastoma group could be further subdivided into 4 categories which showed a trend towards prognostic correlation. Thus, this study though preliminary with number of cases being small in some groups, highlights the possible usefulness of combined histological typing, TESTAST grading and in vivo BrdU LI for prognostication of gliomas especially glioblastoma multiforme.  (+info)

Artificial neural networks: a potential role in osteoporosis. (8/1771)

Artificial neural networks are computer software systems that recognize patterns in complex data sets. A recent development in neural computing, multiversion systems (MVS), has led to enhanced analytical power, and this was harnessed to demonstrate the value of risk factors in predicting the result of osteoporosis investigations by quantitative ultrasound. 274 women were screened in an open-access osteoporosis service. A conventional risk factor questionnaire was completed for each patient by the osteoporosis specialist nurse. An MVS was trained on 180 randomly selected data sets and tested on the remaining 94. The results were compared with those from logistic regression analysis in predictive power, both from the selected 20-item questionnaire and for a limited 5-item questionnaire comprising age, height, height loss, weight and years since the menopause. The MVS approach predicted the T-score categorization of the patients from the 20-item questionnaire with 83.0% accuracy, whereas logistic regression yielded an accuracy of only 72.8% (P = 0.04). From the 5-item database the MVS yielded a best prediction accuracy of 73.1%, whereas the logistic regression prediction accuracy was 60% (P = 0.04). These results suggest that 20 risk factors can be used by an MVS to predict the outcome of osteoporosis investigations with a power that outperforms conventional statistical methods. Use of this system may improve the selection of patients for osteoporosis investigations, since even with only 5 risk factors the system performs nearly as well as that based on the full 20 factors.  (+info)

The development of medical diagnostic devices for point-of-care applications (PoC) is a key demand towards the establishment of decentralized health-care systems. The cost of miniaturized transducers, the need for elaborated modification of the sensing surface and the complexity of the assay workflow impede the widespread use of current biosensing technologies to PoC applications. Herein, we describe a portable medical diagnostic device (we call it BioPoC), which employs free-standing enzyme-modified responsive polymer membrane-based biosensors and a newly devised low-cost transduction principle. The device includes a single vertical channel with an integrated sample dosing well. Its operation is based on the measurement of the time required the originally infinite electric resistance between two, separated by the enzyme-modified responsive polymer membrane, conductive strips to reach a finite value (typically ,20 MOhm) as a result of the target-triggered degradation of the polymer membrane ...

Abnormal regions in living tissue are detected by obtaining images from different views of the living tissue; performing single-image CAD of each image to determine suspected abnormal regions depicted in the image; and combining measurements of the suspected abnormal regions in each image to determine whether a suspected abnormal region is an abnormal region. The living tissue may be a human breast and the abnormal region may be a mass in the breast. Ipsilateral mammographic views of the breast, a craniocaudal view, and a mediolateral oblique view may be used. Features which are relatively invariant or behave predictably with respect to breast compression are extracted using the single-image CAD and then combined.

The developed Renal-CAD system integrates data collected from two image-based sources and two clinical-based sources to assess renal transplant function. The imaging sources were the apparent diffusion coefficients (ADCs) extracted from 47 diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) scans at 11 different b-values (b0, b50, b100, …, b1000 s/mm ), and the transverse relaxation rate (R2*) extracted from 30 blood oxygen level-dependent MRI (BOLD-MRI) scans at 5-different echo-times (TE = 2, 7, 12, 17, and 22 ms). Serum creatinine (SCr) and creatinine clearance (CrCl) were the clinical sources for kidney function evaluation. The Renal-CAD system initially performed kidney segmentation using the level-sets method followed by estimation of the ADCs from DW-MRIs and the R2* from BOLD-MRIs. ADCs and R2* estimates from 30 subjects that have both types of scans were integrated with their associated SCr and CrCl. The integrated biomarkers were then used as our discriminatory features to train ...

For the clinical diagnosis of pathological conditions of the human body a variety of sophisticated examination techniques are employed these days. Most of these approaches yield vast amounts of images and measurement data with high spatial and/or temporal resolutions, e.g. MRI, CT, and Ultrasound. In order to reliably evaluate these data for diagnostic purposes, a certain extent of subjective experience is required on the part of the physician. Due to different reasons, in usual clinical time frames the amount of time available for analyzing and interpreting the acquired data is limited. As a result, diagnostic failure may occur, which can have serious consequences for the affected patient. By means of combined image processing and data analysis approaches this crucial diagnostic process can be objectified and automated. Thus, Computer-Aided Diagnosis systems can be provided to the physician, facilitating her/his clinical decision and yielding more reliable identification of pathological ...

Case-based reasoning (CBR)-driven medical diagnostic systems demand a critical mass of up-to-date diagnostic-quality cases that depict the problem-solving methodology of medical experts. In practical terms, procurement of CBR-compliant cases is quite challenging, as this requires medical experts to map their experiential knowledge to an unfamiliar computational formalism. In this paper, we propose a novel medical knowledge acquisition approach that leverages routinely generated electronic medical records (EMRs) as an alternate source for CBR-compliant cases. We present a methodology to autonomously transform XML-based EMR to specialized CBR-compliant cases for CBR-driven medical diagnostic systems. Our multi-stage methodology features: (a) collection of heterogeneous EMR from Internet-accessible EMR repositories via intelligent agents, (b) automated transformation of both the structure and content of generic EMR to specialized CBR-compliant cases, and (c) inductive estimation of the weight of each case introduces a report Medical Diagnostic Systems in Italy This new study examines Chinas economic trends, investment environment, industry...

Physicians intuitively apply pattern recognition when evaluating a patient. Rational diagnosis making requires that clinical patterns be put in the context of disease prior probability, yet physicians often exhibit flawed probabilistic reasoning. Difficulties in making a diagnosis are reflected in the high rates of deadly and costly diagnostic errors. Introduced 6 decades ago, computerized diagnosis support systems are still not widely used by internists. These systems cannot efficiently recognize patterns and are unable to consider the base rate of potential diagnoses. We review the limitations of current computer-aided diagnosis support systems. We then portray future diagnosis support systems and provide a conceptual framework for their development. We argue for capturing physician knowledge using a novel knowledge representation model of the clinical picture. This model (based on structured patient presentation patterns) holds not only symptoms and signs but also their temporal and semantic

By NICHOLAS PETRICK, PhD. Lets start by defining CAD, since the acronym can have various meanings including computer-aided detection, computer-aided diagnosis, computer-aided display, computer-assist device among others. In this article, Ill use CAD to refer to the general class of computer-assist devices (CADs) defined as a computer algorithm used in combination with an imaging system to aid the clinician in detecting or classifying disease [1]. This includes computer-aided detection (CADe), a computerized system that marks or highlights portions of an image that may reveal abnormalities, and CADx, a computerized system that provides an assessment of disease in terms of likelihood of presence, type, stage, or other characteristic. It is important to understand that CADs dont detect or diagnose disease. The premise of CADs is that information produced by the clinician and by the computer system are somewhat complementary. The contribution of CAD stems from the ability of a clinician to sort ...

In the UAE, a recent study by the Health Authority of Abu Dhabi revealed that CaP is the third most common cancer in the UAE, affecting around 313 males out of every 100,000 of the population, making it the fourth most prevalent form of disease in among men in the UAE. Early and accurate detection will allow clinicians to initiate early intervention and appropriate treatment at earlier stages. Thus, it can potentially decrease the mortality rate of CaP. In addition, it is estimated that early detection of CaP using invasive MRI-based systems will reduce the diagnostic costs by 90%, benefiting patients, payers, and, in a bundled payment system, providers as well. This research will also bring more awareness about the importance of early prostate cancer screening.. Most of the MRI-based computer-aided diagnosis systems proposed so far, ...
Various strategies can be used in the diagnosis of upper gastrointestinal tract bleeding. This study investigates the relevance of anamnestic and clinical findings for the diagnosis of the bleeding source. The authors introduced a computer-aided diagnostic system using Bayes theorem and compared it with clinicians predictions using anamnestic and clinical findings only. There was no difference in the overall accuracy rates, but a difference was observed in the diagnostic behaviors of the two systems. In addition, the discriminatory ability of the computer-aided system, the sharpness of the predictions obtained, and the reliability of the posterior probabilities were analyzed. It is concluded that the clinician and the computer-aided system are not able to discriminate well between the disease categories. Derived classification matrices and probability-based measures show the reasons for the inadequacy of diagnostic information obtainable from the clinical history and physical findings. ...

Ocular images play an essential role in ophthalmological diagnoses. Having an imbalanced dataset is an inevitable issue in automated ocular diseases diagnosis; the scarcity of positive samples always tends to result in the misdiagnosis of severe patients during the classification task. Exploring an effective computer-aided diagnostic method to deal with imbalanced ophthalmological dataset is crucial. In this paper, we develop an effective cost-sensitive deep residual convolutional neural network (CS-ResCNN) classifier to diagnose ophthalmic diseases using retro-illumination images. First, the regions of interest (crystalline lens) are automatically identified via twice-applied Canny detection and Hough transformation. Then, the localized zones are fed into the CS-ResCNN to extract high-level features for subsequent use in automatic diagnosis. Second, the impacts of cost factors on the CS-ResCNN are further analyzed using a grid-search procedure to verify that our proposed system is robust and efficient.

Symptomology cannot be trusted alone, especially if a person is presenting with just a few and vague symptoms.. An objective means of diagnosing a disease should be made. Objectivity would most certainly need empirical measurements and comparisons. This would then provide an accurate measurement that can be compared against any given standard. With medical diagnostic equipment, doctors are given an accurate and objective tool which could allow them to appropriately diagnose conditions.. Medical diagnostic equipment allows doctors to get measurements of things like blood pressure and eye pressure. They help to provide data as to why someone is not feeling well, establishing an accurate measurement of things like red blood cells, plasma, electrolytes, etc. Finally, it will allow them to view any microorganism that might be attacking the body of a patient.. The equipment also allows doctors to see areas of the body that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Equipment like x-rays enable the doctors to ...

Purpose: A novel approach to a computer aided diagnosis system for the Parkinsons disease is proposed. This tool is intended as a supporting tool for physicians, based on fully automated methods that lead to the classification of{sup 123}I-ioflupane SPECT images. Methods: {sup 123}I-ioflupane images from three different databases are used to train the system. The images are intensity and spatially normalized, then subimages are extracted and a 3D gray-level co-occurrence matrix is computed over these subimages, allowing the characterization of the texture using Haralick texture features. Finally, different discrimination estimation methods are used to select a feature vector that can be used to train and test the classifier. Results: Using the leave-one-out cross-validation technique over these three databases, the system achieves results up to a 97.4% of accuracy, and 99.1% of sensitivity, with positive likelihood ratios over 27. Conclusions: The system presents a robust feature extraction ...
After hearing for several decades that computers will soon be able to assist with difficult diagnoses, the practicing physician may well wonder why the revolution has not occurred. Skepticism at this point is understandable. Few, if any, programs currently have active roles as consultants to physicians. The story behind these unfulfilled expectations is instructive and, we believe, offers hope for the future.. Research on computer-aided diagnosis began in the 1960s with high hopes that difficult clinical problems might yield to mathematical formalisms. Most work therefore centered on the application of flow charts, Boolean algebra, pattern matching, and decision analysis to the diagnostic process. Except in extremely narrow clinical domains, each of these techniques proved to have little or no practical value. Most observers came to believe that for a program to have expert capability, it must in some fashion mimic the behavior of experts. Early work on computer-aided diagnosis was thus largely ...

Fig. 3.91 Example of 3D-rendered view of abdominal contrast-enhanced CT image. Region Growing The process extracts abdominal blood vessels by tracing high- intensity regions on contrast-enhanced CT images. The first step, that of continuous growing of regions from a given starting point, often uses spherical structure elements. Typical growing conditions are based on intensity values. Because abdominal blood vessels have a branching structure, growing conditions considering such branching are also developed.. Blood Vessel Enhancement Filter The diameters of abdominal blood vessels visible on CT vary from 30 mm in size to submillimeter. Because of the partial volume effect, the intensity of small blood vessels is lower. Also, absolute intensity values of small blood vessels become smaller than those of large blood vessels. Thresholding or region-growing methods may fail to detect abdominal blood vessels because of such phenomena. This is the reason for using a blood vessel enhancement filter. ...
